Biographical Sketch

Louis Ouzer is a local Rochester photographer of national reputation for his portrait photographs of musicians. Ouzer has operated as a photographer in Rochester since the 1930’s. Early in his career much of his work came to center on the activities of Eastman School of Music. Eventually he opened a photgraphic studio on Gibbs St. in the Lincoln Building, near Eastman School. Because of this convenient proximity, Ouzer came to serve as the unofficial School photographer. His photographs span six decades of the School’s existence and are extremely well known by its students, faculty and alumni.
